    The capital of Hellespontine Phrygia (Wikipedia) - Hellespontine Phrygia   (Redirected from Dascylium)

    Hellespontine Phrygia (Greek: Ἑλλησποντιακὴ Φρυγία) was a satrapy of the Achaemenid Empire in ancient Anatolia, comprising lands of Troad, Mysia and Bithynia and whose seat was at Daskyleion, south of Cyzicus, Mysia.

    Pharnabazus was satrap of Darius III there, until Alexander the Great appointed Calas, who was replaced by Arrhidaeus in the Treaty of Triparadisus. According to Strabo, Hellespontine Phrygia and Phrygia Epictetus comprise Lesser Phrygia (Mysia). Others geographers arranged it differently.
